Eighteen is pleased to present Formering, a solo exhibition by Linus Bill + Adrien Horni
In their first exhibition with Eighteen, Formering, the Swiss artist duo Linus Bill + Adrien Horni engages in a dynamic, elaborate and progressive art making practice where questions of origin, hierarchies, and definitions are intuitively challenged. A shared alphabet of shapes emerges through two series of large-scale oil-, acrylic- and silkscreen paintings (190 x 140 cm) along two large cast concrete sculptures. An abstract alphabet of strangely familiar forms, digital residue translated perfectly by precision screen printing, gradual layering of colour and transparency. Formering is the first exhibition to display these works together, and it is intriguing to observe Linus Bill + Adrien Horni’s mutual alphabet transform and interact across different medias, ideas and motifs. A language in process.
Two new publications will be available on the occasion of the exhibition. During CHART Art Fair, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, August 30 – September 1, Copenhagen, the duo will present a suite of 10 paintings.
Concurrently opening at V1 Gallery: Thomas Øvlisen – Variations in Blue
